  • Definitely beautiful views from the fort (but beauty is so readily available in Ireland). It's not a must-see on my list only because the windy road takes you far off the Ring of Kerry and you can use that time seeing other unique/more impressive marvels of the Irish landscape. Make sure you bring a couple of euro to pay the fee to be on the land.
